"The location is great but could use some attention"
The elevators are the greatest frustration of most of the visitors I spoke to including my group. Wifi exists but doesn't reach the majority of guests; even the staff complains about this. The luggage carts are none existent. When we arrived hotel security directed us to park in the parking garage and asked us if any check-in staff told us not to unload our luggage at the front door but rather park across the street in the parking garage and walk back across to retrieve a luggage cart. When I mentioned that I was unaware he complained about the staff not letting us know this and then complained about the guests not following instructions to return the luggage carts after use. The staff is not attentive to the guests whatsoever. Staff is rarely seen unless you walk by the check-in counter. Last note: when we were at the 1st floor bar we had to flag down a staff member to order another drink. When we arrived at the bar there were at least three staff members watching a World Cup game but once we sat down they all dispersed (including the bar tender). Although the hotel itself is relatively nice, I'll look for an alternative next time. There is plenty to choose from. My only fear is the majority of the hotels in the area of Front Beach Drive Tidewater was in, seem to be owned by the same group. Blahhhh!!!

"Perfect for us."
I started reading reviews shortly before our stay and got quite nervous. Yes, the elevators at check in were a bit ridiculous (over a 30 minute wait) and yes, the stairs were somewhat unclean. However the rest of our stay was perfect. Around 4 pm at check-in on the weekend was the only time we had difficulties with the elevators. Our room was prefect and clean, with all the needed dish soap, laundry detergent, towels, etc). The view was prefect, even though we chose to save money and go with "gulf view" rather than "gulf front" we still had a beach front, corner balcony. The beach chair service is an awesome amenity that most others charge for (we did not get up super early to wait in line for front row, 3rd row was prefect for relaxing and much less crowded.)Only about a 10 minute walk to the pier for dinner and shopping! If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, go somewhere else. If you're looking for a nice get away that meets your needs for a good price- go to Tidewater.

"nice rooms, nice people, plenty of other problems"
I booked a room with a king size bed. We needed a king size bed. We are big people. First room we got was a double bed and felt like laying on concrete. They moved us to a much nicer room with a much nicer bed but about halfway through our trip a water leak caused a huge soaking wet spot in the floor of the master bedroom. The elevators were terrible. Rarely ever waited less than 5 minutes for one and sometimes waited 15 minutes. Beach chairs had to be reserved early in the morning and had to be done daily where most places I've stayed before could be reserved for the week so we had to wake up and walk down to the beach every morning instead of getting to sleep in, which is really important to me on vacation. I have to get up every morning at home for work. Not interested in it on vacation. The staff was super nice and helpfulet but despite that I won't be staying there again.

"Re-Think you stay at Tidewater!"
Great location and great room - however, too many other problems with the Property - it was not clean, the elevators are NOT designed for the # of units in this complex - WAY too many people in this property for it to operate correctly. There was trash all over and we were forced to use stairs almost daily and the stairs were in awful condition - A real mess .. The "intent" is very good - we had stayed at this complex before BUT I forgot until we arrived and I knew we were in trouble. Again the actual unit we stayed in was nice and comfortable .. BUT certainly NOT worth the mess you had to go though to get to you and from your room.

"Great experience, wonderful view."
All in all, staying at the Tidewater was a great experience - I would definitely return there again. The only caveat I would add is the potential for extended elevator wait times. While the elevators themselves were relatively fast between floors, there are not enough of them for a building this large; when busy, expect to wait at least 10-15 minutes or hit the stairs.

"Great Views"
We went on vacation to celebrate our 2nd year wedding anniversary. We found the staff to be nice and approachable. We also found the room to be well kept and clean. If you are a person who is looking for a relaxed atmosphere and doesn't like room service to bother you, then this is the hotel for you. There were plenty of pools and hot tubs and the access to the beach was easily accessible.

I would like the beach chair rental company to use a different method in chair section. Let us pick where we want to sit!! Because people without small kids dont want to sit with near guest with small kids. Or if the beach is not full, dont sit everyone so close, Everyone is at the beach to relax!!

"TOO MUCH WATER @ TideWater"
Taking a shower at Tidewater and SEWAGE began backing up into the tub. GROSS! Used the washing machine and it flooded the condo. So definitely too much water in UNIT 1714. Management said they were aware of the problems with UNIT 1714 and continue to rent it out. We have always stayed here and always enjoyed it. NOT AGAIN. They are not maintaining plumbing systems and are not honest with the people who stay in their condos.

The condo was nice and in a good location, not too far from any event along front beach road. It was clean and all the appliances worked fine. The walls and ceiling need more sound proofing. The beach was very nice the only problem was there is a large water run-off drain located about 75 yards to the east of the beach. The water run-off makes the normally very blue green gulf water a bit murky.

"Misleading advertising"
Before you book this hotel you need to know that the pool bar isn't open until Memorial Day weekend and both the restaurant and coffee bar are under renovation. We booked this hotel hoping we wouldn't have to leave and that was definitely not the case. They only have one person working the front desk and there is always a wait to get help of any kind. Not happy.

"Tidewater Beach Resort by Wyndham Vacation Rentals"
The Condo facilities were very nice and the rooms excellent. The rooms were large, spacious with quality furniture and amenities. The beech staff and amenities were very good. All hotel staff were friendly and courteous. Ample parking and dumb waiters. The convenience store, located in the Condo building was closed. Please update your website. While the beach side of the street was nice, there was a hodge podge of buildings in various states of repair across the street. The closest tourist street and mall are only about 10 minutes away. Just a short drive, but too far to walk. I would stay at the facility again.

"Too large of a property for our liking"
There were 30 floors with 18 units per floor. A bit too large and busy for us. If you like the hustle and bustle then you may enjoy this property, as the location is great, right on the beach. The web site says no adults under the age of 25 but we saw many. The units have large balconies with great views of the sunsets Town is only a 10 minute drive with ample parking and many restaurants from which to choose. We prefer more of an upscale property which goes for the clientele as well. The one hour trip to Destin was well worth it. We may stay there on our next visit.

"Excellent View"
The view was beautiful. The condo we stayed at was decent, very roomy, the two bathrooms came in handy. Getting free passes to the chairs and theater was nice. Its also a great place in the middle of town. Walking distance to many reastraunts and shops. I was a little displeased by the charge we had to pay for room cleaning, because we pay that before we see the room, and after there was a toe nail on the ground by the bed and the bedding was very stained. Also when I dropped my phone plug behind the bed it was highly disgusting back there. The WIFI also wasn't very good. Other than those issues, it was a decent stay.

"25 and over for everyone."
At the start it dirty was a 100 dollar cleaning fee before everything else. Secondly when we tried to check in the personal were ridiculously rude. The condo was dirty (sand on plates and no clean sheets) even worse was no toilet paper or trsdsh bags all the things that are complimentary service. The TV didn't work, dirty silverware, and half the lights didn't work. For the price and service its not worth it. Would recommend the sandpiper tho.

Great time, clean condo, good time with the family. You do a really long time for the elevators that was to be expected and read that in the reviews before I got there so I wasn't surprised at all. The view was great. The pool and hot tub was kept clean even it was too cold to get in the outside pools cause they were heated but the hot tub was the perfect temperature even for my three-year-old playing it for hours of time

"Will never stay in this hotel again!"
The stay in the hotel was the worst experience we had in Panama city. We were not aware of the rule that you have to be 25+ in order to check in. When we checked in it was 11:00 PM and there were no one in the front desk. So, we got the keys through the automatic system. The next day, we were not able to unlock the room. When we asked the reception, they said to leave the hotel in one hour as we were not 25+. We were even ready to pay security deposit or extra amount. But they didn't hear anything. There were 2 security guards waiting in front of our room to make sure that we pack our stuffs and leave. We were literally kicked out of the hotel for the age reason. We 5 guys were 23+ and all are international students. Also we were made to pay extra amount for "cleaning charge". They also have "no return policy". We booked the room for 4 days and we were kicked out after the first day. But they didn't return the money. I had to ask hotels.com to get my money back. Nothing can compensate for the way we were treated. I will never stay in this hotel again.
